The dinner...

OK, I know you have all had this experience...(if not, please don't tell me). I got the great idea that I would only use what I had in the pantry and freezer for dinner one night. So I started a pot of rice and then went to the pantry. I found a bottle of sweet and sour sauce and a can of pineapple chunks and thought, "hmmmm what can I do with this?" So I pulled out some frozen meatballs (italian style, that is probably where the problem started) and came up with the brilliant idea of sweet and sour pineapple and meatballs over rice. Sounds pretty good...right??? Then, I found a bag of frozen edamame and served that on the side. Well...my family DID NOT enjoy this dinner! To say the least! I served it with some chow mein noodles and that was about all that we enjoyed. But not how you might think!


Awwww, he still loves me, even though dinner stunk!




Didn't leave the dogs names out...they even enjoyed a few that fell on the floor

This was one of Troy's many "creative" noodle words....the others I couldn't post! Oh well, what was I thinking! My family doesn't even like Chinese food!!! We did end up enjoying some delicious Gala apples and the edamame, so I guess the meal was somewhat nutritious! Thank goodness for chow mein noodles...bet you never knew how much entertainment they could provide!!! They saved our dinner!

LOL! It reminds me of the time I was going to make chicken pot pie but my teenagers ate all the chicken so I used tuna. Not a good idea, not at all. Think I'll buy some noodles for the next dinner I prepare for my grandsons. They will have a blast. Blessings to you and yours.
